In all the years that I have taken my cars in for repair, I have been totally satisified with both the service and price. They will also inform you when not to make a repair or how to best repair a car for the least amount of money.

Great repair shopBeing a woman, I always heard how mechanics were just trying to pull one over on you. I was doubtful about taking my car anywhere. They were recommended to me by a man I was dating. That turned out to be great advice. Great honest people here! They care about the car AND the customer.

They explain their diagnosis and procedures in a very compentent manner. They have the skills to work on a broad range of cars and years. Their charges are very fair.

You will not find more ethical mechanics than these guys. They will even fight for warranty work at the dealers when the dealers don't want to tell you it's warranteed. And this means that Fred and Jim's doesn't make a dime off you! They are curteous and up to date. Labor rate is reasonable. This is a second generation,family owned business with old fasioned ethics and values. I have been taking my car there for 15+ years and have been pleased!

These guys are the best! You can completely trust them to tell you what needs to be done. When we had problems (the lemon Ford Windstar) they helped us find a dealer who would repair our car under warranty. I frequently recommend them to others as a place where even the naive can get a trustworthy deal. I can't say enough positive about them--you can absolutely trust them to do the right (ethical ) thing.
